Logitech’s PRO X series headphones were the best of the gaming headphones that Logitech had available that really made you feel like you had a set of “Pro” headphones. The original pair of the PRO Xs were incredible. At the time, those headphones were the only headphones to draw me away from all other gaming headphones. So what could Logitech come up with to trump the PRO X’s that already had great sound, great mic and solid build quality? The same pair but without all the wires possibly? Yup. That’s what happened.
Up until now I had no issues with the original PRO X. They’ve been great. The only thing that I could consider an issue was the fact that they weren’t wireless and that meant that I would have to deal with cables. I don’t particularly mind but I have so many pairs of gaming cans and having to deal with more cables can be a pain in the ass. Well, problem solved. Logitech hit me up recently and told me that the the PRO X was not only being refreshed for 2020 but now they’re wireless. It’s safe to say that I was HYPED!!
DESIGN IS THE SAME BUT THE PRO X IS WIRELESS NOW
Logitech didn’t really change anything at all with these PRO X Wireless cans. They got it right the first time. Yes, there are some subtle changes but it’s mostly internal and for the most part the look and feel are pretty much the same as its predecessor. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
As far as what you get with the PRO X wireless, let’s just state the obvious first. It’s wireless. This is the best part about the new PRO Xs. You can simply charge your headphones, lean back and game without restriction. The PRO X fully charged according to Logitech gives you around 20+ hours of battery life. I personally can’t say whether or not I got 20+ hours of total gametime play but I can tell you that I played games for multiple days for hours on end before I finally got the alert that it was time to charge my headphones. So while that 20+ claim is probably not totally accurate the battery life is very good and you’ll definitely have a lot of time to spare in between charges.
If you’re consuming media you can watch whatever you want from distance because the wireless dongle that comes with the PRO X has incredible range which is why I’m glad Logi went this route as opposed to bluetooth. The wireless dongle will remain connected without any interference for up to 13m.
SOUND QUALITY, BLUE VOICE AND THE G HUB
Sound quality on the PRO X’s are top notch. Gaming and enjoying media on these headphones are just as good as their predecessor. The new PRO X are using a powerful 50mm driver that gives you great clarity, great boom, comfort and solid noise reduction and cancellation that warrants its $199 price tag.
The G Hub once again is the go to for configuration with Logitech G devices and the PRO X’s take full advantage of it. The G Hub I will admit can be a bit much because of how detailed it is and just how much configuration options that you have generally. With the PRO X Wireless even more so. There’s so many ways that you can configure these headphones because they are so multi-faceted you may not even want to use the G-Hub but trust me, you WANT to use it with these headphones.
Aside from your generic presets the PRO X Wireless gives you surround sound and isolation capability for these headphones. So whether you’re watching an action flick or playing COD the G Hub gives you a wealth of options to tailor your sound to your specific style of play or whatever it is you want to hear most from your media.
When Logitech acquired mic manufacturer Blue they did it with the intent to hopefully improve on what was already a good product but also give it more reach to the masses. This is why it was incorporated into the PRO X and PRO X Wireless. The Blue Voice settings allow for very detailed audio settings for streaming, podcasting and voiceover. Content creators will love this. Its mic level customization in the G Hub. While I’m not implying that these headphones could ever replace an actual mic it does matter that you have this type of option. The options and audio customizations are aplenty in the software. I didn’t find Blue voice to be helpful to me because I strictly game and chat but of course it’s up to you how you intend to use it.
The PRO X Wireless and the G-Hub together make these headphones better than they are right out of the box. So the idea is to use it and use it often if you’re the owner of these headphones.
The PRO X Wireless is not light on specs. What you get for your $200 is a set of gaming headphones that Logitech made sure would give you as a good a quality experience in audio as possible. Take a look at what’s inside those earcups and you be the judge.

LOGITECH’S PRO X WIRELESS ARE A GREAT VALUE PICKUP
In the past 2 weeks that I had with the PRO X Wireless headphones I haven’t felt the need to use any other gaming headphones as I stated earlier in my review. These headphones are SOLID. You get all the comfort you should expect from a set of $200 headphones albeit a little snug. The quality is top notch as nothing about these headphones feel cheap or flimsy. Battery life is great. The wireless dongle allows you great range just in case you need to step away from your PC without losing connection. The G Hub once you get used to it is fairly easy to use.
The PRO X Wireless is feature packed so it could seem overwhelming when using the G Hub BUT there are presets that give you a bit of everything you may want from your sound depending on the situation. These headphones are for the gamer, streamer, podcaster, content creator, whatever. Nothing this set of headphones can’t be used for. All things considered I’m very happy with the PRO X Wireless. Not much to really complain about without it seeming like a nitpick. Logitech nailed these headphones. Simple and plain. If you want to pick up a pair you can grab a set HERE. They retail at $199 which is the going rate for headphones with these features and intended use. So they aren’t overpriced. They’re just right and you won’t regret your purchase.
